Depends.

What dealer is doing the work, what problems you are having and weather or not your mods caused the problem.

I will not answer this, for I might be a little bias to the subject. hehehe I honestly had my 05 in the shop for a heater control vacuumn pump once. Thats it. If a programmer is un-installed correctly or module removed completely, you "SHOULD" be just fine. If you beat the living hell out of your truck, and blow a headgasket, they will know why when they pull the heads and look at the top of your pistons. I run one of our ID custom SCTs on Extreme Race daily. I run the truck hard everyday, but I know its limitations, and I keep myself under control (as much as possable) lol. Prevention is half the battle. First mod should always be gauges then Exhaust, intake is nice if your running high hp tunes, then add the power. If you have the money, installing headstuds before you have a problem would be ideal.

Yes, it is highly advised to take out your module or programmer before going to the dealership. Its the price you pay for performance. Banks makes very good products, but they are considerable more than other brands. We carry Banks, but their are many good options for your truck. I would never tell someone not to buy Banks, just consider all your options first. The best advise I can give you is...Be an educated buyer. Their are alot of knowledgable people on this forum, read and ask questions. You can call us or any of the site supporters too for more info.

215k on a 4r100! That has to be some kind of a record. That is awesome.

i just noticed the reply. not 215,000 on the tranny. that was the cps. the tranny has 225,000 and still going. i am not tryingto hijack the thread, so any more tranny mileage talk probably needs a new thread.
